(first preaching and discourse), and Kushinagar (where breathed last).
Lumbini is the traditional birthplace of Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism born in
6th Century B.C.
In 249 BC, the Buddhist converter Emperor Asoka visited Lumbini and constructed four stupas and a stone pillar. Asoka’s Pillar bears an inscription that translates as: “King Piyadasi (Asoka), beloved of devas, in the 20 year of the coronation, himself made a royal visit, Buddha Sakyamuni having been born here, a stone railing was built and a stone pillar erected proving that Buddha was born here.
The most important temple at Lumbini is the Maya Devi Temple, which enshrines the traditional site of the Buddha’s birth. The current temple stands on the site of earlier temples and stupas, including the stupa built by Asoka.
The modern temple consists mainly of simple white building that protects ancient ruins, with the exact spot of the Buddha’s birth identified.
